Annual Conference and Industry Group Sessions
During these sessions, attendees heard from industry visionaries—including Pablos Holman, Jason Schenker, Peter Sheahan and Michael Bush—on topics ranging from technology, leadership, the economy and the workforce crisis. MHI Industry Group meetings and conference sessions gave attendees insights into the latest trends and digital technologies impacting our industry.
Attendees enjoyed a variety of networking and social opportunities that took advantage of the great Palm Springs location. The activities started with a Welcome Dinner and continued with a party celebrating old Hollywood. The final night of the Conference featured an evening of recognition and entertainment from Digital Deception. Great food, fun and fellowship was had by all.
Awards and Recognition
During the Wednesday night celebration, Jim Galante was presented the Material Handling Education Foundation, Inc. (MHEFI) Exceptional Contribution Award for his work with EASE. Additionally, several individuals were recognized for their service and dedication to the industry. Those honored included Liz Richards, Art Stroyd, Tom Rodgers, Steve Buccella and Bryan Carey.
In addition to the presented awards, MHEFI also hosted a fundraiser at the 2019 MHI Annual Conference. In order “to attract students to the material handling, logistics and supply chain industry by providing financial support,” MHEFI set a goal to raise $25,000 over the course of the three-day conference. Through generous pledged and online donations from Annual Conference attendees, the goal was met and exceeded.
